Is the camera even listed in the device manager?
Else contact MSI for RMA, it could be broken.

Your notebook should have a recovery key on it, it's shown when you boot the machine.
Normally it's one of the Function-keys, then it should offer you recovery options.

Sorry no idea, have you contacted MSI about it?
Could be the webcam is broken.
